A plant is like a business – This is actually my own plant, a giant spathiphyllum, that I have had in the office for about 14 years.
Why like a business –
(1) You make sure you satisfy the essential day to day and week to week requirements (happy customers, finished work and cashflow)
(2) Once or twice a year you give it some additional fertiliser (new marketing)
(3) Every couple of years you pot it up into a bigger pot (capacity to deliver)
Conclusion: If you do this, then growth to massive size and self propagation are the outcome.
But it’s all lost if you don’t attend to number (1) – (happy customers, finished work and cashflow).
